Our son has been on suspension of benefits Army ROTC
Our son has been on suspension of benefits for his Army ROTC program due to shoulder surgery. He (hopefully) will be reinstated soon and is graduating in May (then will go into the Reserves and law school). We have been paying his tuition this school year. Can he (we) get reimbursed for his expenses? He is on a full 4 year scholarship to include room and board?

I contracted to enlist, and then did enlist, in February 2010.
I contracted to enlist, and then did enlist, in February 2010. My contract included a bonus addendum with that required me to become MOS-Q'd within 24 months or else forfeit the bonus. At the time of my enlistment, I verbally noted to the agent at MEPS that if I was not going to report to BCT until April 2010, and my training pipeline of a minimum of 88 weeks was likely carry me beyond the 24 month mark, then I could not qualify for my own bonus. He assured me that it would not be a problem because the clause was designed for people who fail their courses or get injured. I finished every training stage on time and with honors, but I did exceed the 24 month deadline. Now the National Guard is refusing to pay my bonus. What recourse do I have?

Hi, my son has been awol from the Army since Nov. 2011. He joined at 17, deployed to Afghanistan for a year,(infantry) and returned. His duty base was Ft. Irwin when he left. He would like to turn himself in. My question is how much help would it be to retain a military lawyer? Should the lawyer be based in CA? Should he turn himself in to his base?

I am stationed in USAREUR and live off post with my wife.View more military law questions
I am stationed in USAREUR and live off post with my wife. I am trying to determine my child support for my child that lives in NC. NC DSS is trying to say that all of entitlements are included in the child support worksheet. The amount they determined was for an E-6 with 5 years in the army to pay 855.00 a month for one child that only has 150 dollars a month in child care. They included all BAH, COLA, BAS anad base pay. Is this correct and if it is where can I find it in writing stating that so I can correct them with substantiating evidence?
